Windows 10 or Windows 7?
My friends and family ask me all of the time which Microsoft Windows Operating System I prefer. Windows 10 or Windows 7? I tell them I prefer Windows 7. Then they ask me which one I would recommend for them and that is a little harder to answer. I prefer Windows 7 from a technician stand point. This meaning that if I was going to have to load an OS on a computer, I would prefer Windows 7 because I can literally load it from a USB flash drive in about 15 minutes and be up and running. Windows 10 will not load near that fast, even from a USB flash drive. Now, from a users standpoint, I do like the bells and whistles that come with Windows 10. It is a true upgrade from Windows 8 and 8.1. Windows 10 was just a way for Microsoft to get us to forget how crappy and slow Windows 8 was from the beginning, even after the 8.1 update. However, that being said, Windows 10 is still a little glitchy from time to time. Sometimes it will do funky things. Sometimes it will freeze or go slow. The bottom line for me is until Windows 10 can run as stable as Windows 7, then I can do without all the bells and whistles in Windows 10 and simply use something that works. Windows 7 just works for me and that makes me happy. As I tell everyone, you have to pick the one that makes you happiest because if you are cranky all of the time while you are on your computer because the OS is giving you issues, then that is not the OS for you. Lets hope that Microsoft streamlines Windows 10 and makes it the OS that we have all been waiting for to make us happy again after the Windows 8 debacle.
